                                          Hello Friends!! Its been a very long time since I blogged. Sorry,  if I made anybody to wait for my posts. I was little busy and could not give time for the blog. From now, I ll try my best to be more regular with posting. This time I came with carrot sweet, which I made on Valentines day. This is the experiment I made with traditional carrot halwa/kheer which uses milk.  We liked it, hope you too love it.

                         Carrot Sweet

                                                                   Carrot Sweet
Ghee – 1-2 Tbspn
Brown sugar – 1 cup
Cardamom – 2 no.
Carrot grated – 2 cups
Water – 1/2 cup
Saffron (optional)
Cashewnuts – 1 Tbspn
Raisins – 1 Tbsbn

1.Heat ghee in a pan. Add brown sugar, cardamom. Keep stirring it until sugar melts ( Be careful while doing this. Avoid adding water at this satge as there are chances of catching fire).
2.Once sugar gets melted , add grated carrot.
3.Stir well for about 5 min, add water.
4.Let it cook for 10 min.
6.Garnish the sweet with fried (in ghee) cashew nuts, raisins
7.Serve this hot or cold. Both tastes good.

1.BROWN SUGAR: Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product with a distinctive brown color due to the presence of molasses. It is either an unrefined or partially refined soft sugar consisting of sugar crystals with some residual molasses content or produced by the addition of molasses to refined white sugar. Brown sugar has a slightly lower caloric value
by weight than white sugar due to the presence of water. One hundred grams of brown sugar contains 373 calories, as opposed to 396 calories in white sugar. However, brown sugar packs more densely than white sugar due to the smaller crystal size and may have more calories when measured by volume. Read more here.
2.In step one, be careful and avoid adding water at that stage, as there are chances of catching fire.
3.I added little saffron in 1/2 cup of water n used that water in step 3.
4.In step 2, I first removed the pan from fire n added the carrot.
5.It took about 15 min for me to cook.
